What to Wear

What you wear to a photo shoot can really set the tone for the entire look and feel of the shoot. Clients often ask me what they should wear, so I thought I would share a few tips to help you look your best.

1. Start with one person and build from there. It’s not always necessary to go out and buy new outfits for everyone. Often you can make it work with a lot of pieces you arleady own. I suggest starting by choosing one persons outfit, and then build the rest of the outfits around that. Start by choosing a solid or something with a simple pattern, as anything too busy can distract from the photo.

2. Build other outfits to coordinate NOT match the first person. This doesn’t mean mutliple people wearing the same color shirt, pants, etc. Instead choose outfits that go together. Choose similar colors, solids that go with a pattern, or even mutliple simple patterns within the same color scheme (this can be really beautiful.) Choose two colors and a neautral (black, brown, grey) and stick to that color pallette.

Things to keep in mind:

The location where we will be taking photos. Think about the colors that go well with that setting.

Avoid loud patterns, logos, or neon colors.

Accessorize to compliment your outfits, but keep it simple.
